Saddam has been executed….

Recommended Posts

I think what really bothers me is the way this is going to be interpreted by the West.


I can't stand when a movement like Islam fundamentalism, which he obviously exploited to reach his position is ridiculed and demonized like we do. Its adherents are real people with real beliefs and reasons for their actions, just as smart and morally motivated as we are here. "There but for the grace of God go I".

In a vacuum I would agree that Saddam deserves to die but in the context of the Middle East, it just seems so vulgar and disgraceful, and like it will only inspire more hatred between the political parties.

I see what you're saying, too. Ugh, I've seen so many people talking about "Is it America's divine purpose to spread democracy to other countries?"

white man's burden!!!!

~__~ When I was in 5th grade I heard about "manifest destiny" and interpreted it to mean that America should take over the entire world(!) and it really upset and disgusted me and I asked my DARE officer about it and he said he agreed with it! But I don't think he interpreted it to mean what I did. XD
